TAPAHTUI TURUN HAMPPU VAPAAKSI -MARSSISSA 2000


Kannabismielenosoitus 2000 Turussa menestys

Arviolta 200-300 ihmistä ilmaisi halunsa kannabistuotteiden laillistamiseksi Turussa 6.5. pidetyssä värikkäässä ja rauhallisessa mielenosoituksessa. Järjestäjät odottivat korkeintaan 100 rohkeaa paikalle tähän ensimmäiseen Suomessa järjestettyyn julkiseen mielenilmaukseen huumepolitiikan muuttamiseksi realistisempaan suuntaan.

Mielenosoitus lähti liikkeelle kello 14.00 Puolalanpuistosta, kiersi pitkän lenkin keskustassa ja päätyi Vartiovuorelle rauhalliseksi smoke-in tapahtumaksi kesäauringon paisteessa. Poliisi käyttäytyi koko kulkueen ajan hyvin asiallisesti: alusta pitäen oli selvää, että väkimäärä ei mahdu jalkakäytävälle ja lisäpartio auttoi muun liikenteen ohjaamisessa verkkaisen kulkueen täyttäessä ajoväylän ja välillä myös jalkakäytävät.

Kylteissä vaadittiin kannabista vapaaksi, mielipiteen vapautta Turun Sanomien sensuroitua 3.5 uutisen mielenosoituksesta, pyydettiin ihmisiä tutustumaan piippuun perjantaipullon sijaan, kerrottiin hampun monikäyttöisyydestä jne. Mielenosoittajille tarkoitettu materiaali levisikin suurelle yleisölle marssin aikana. Ihmiset ottivat hymyssä suin vastaan heille tarjottuja monisteita. Risteyksiin pysähtyneistä autoista liittyi lisää ihmisiä kulkueeseen. Erotuksena virallisesta huumepolitiikasta Turun mielenosoitus oli pienellä budjetilla tehty mutta hyvin positiivinen ilmapiiriltään.

Pysykää kanavalla, sillä kohta saadaan valokuvia tänne!

Pro-cannabis demonstration in Turku a big success

First ever public pro-cannabis demonstration in Finland was a popular and very peacefull happening. With shoe string budget the arrangers, The Green Panthers, cathered 200-300 people to participate into a peacefull and colourfull demonstration through the center of Turku (160 000 inhabitants). The arrangers had expected maximum 100 brave to participate and the free spirited atmosphere of people was a good surprise in a country where official drug politics is fearfull and very black and white.

The police was friendly and polite: when the crowd turned out to be too big for the sidewalk the demonstration walked into the street and more police forces come to stop the traffic. After the demonstration the police let people go freely into the Vartiovuori park where there was a peacefull smoke-in with music and ball games in warm sunshine.

Despite the total neglect of public media the word had spread from mouth to mouth and also to other towns. Demonstration was low-fi and low budget but very high-spirited and gave lots of ideas and encouragment for the next year.
